Materia Confusa's debut release with Webbed Hand Records is an EP of compositions influenced by alchemical processes and electronic voice phenomena.
Derived from acoustic source material and tweaked for a couple of years until the base matter of it was transmuted to gold, these two tracks rivet the attention.
This is a joint venture with the home label of Materia Confusa (Sonance). Cover art credit goes to Materia Confusa. You can learn more about MC at www.materiaconfusa.net.

The alchemical transformation of base elements to aural splendor is illustrated here to stunning effect.
Disparate sources combine and bleed their essences into a transcendent and cohesive Whole, all the while inspiring one's imagination to flights of hallucinogenic beauty. Within these two tracks, angelic voices mesh seamlessly with Tibetan horns, plateaus of looping, shimmering spectral voices have the power to haunt again and again, a charged atmosphere of otherworldliness is created throughout. Truly inspired and beautifully realized, these short pieces are a compelling introduction to an outstanding and endlessly inventive artist.
